Thanks for posting setlist + vids.  :thumbsup:
I was off for a few days and I am well impressed that someone stepped in while I wasn't here.

Yeah, I was there in the affordable... (AUD$180/USD$140!) standing area. Got there early so was only 2 or 3 people back from the barrier.

Nice. :thumbsup: Would you mind writing a short review? It would be nice to "hear" it from a fan rather than from someone who gets paid for it. :giggle:

OK, some background first.  I've seen Velvet Revolver at Download, Donington Park (June 2005) and Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators in Brisbane (August 2012).  I've seen Guns N' Roses in Perth (June 2007), Brisbane (March 2013) and now again in Brisbane (Feb 2017).  I've also seen Walking Papers at Soundwave in Brisbane (Feb 2014).

Overall this concert was really great.  Everyone sounded fantastic (although the mixing was a bit off at times with certain vocals or synths standing out too much).  I really enjoyed the song choices which covered all their albums and their UYI concert videos.  I loved hearing Duff's vocals as they brought back a lot of that characteristic GNR sound.  I was also impressed with Melissa Reese's vocals and stage presence.

It's the most energetic I've seen Slash perform out of the concerts I've attended.  It reminds me a lot of the UYI concert videos.  His guitar tone was a little smooth sounding and lacking a bit of gain to me, but was still highly enjoyable.  I actually preferred Richard's guitar tone.  It was quite noticeable when they were trading riffs.  Richard's tone stood out.

Axl's vocals were great, although he did sound briefly off at the end of one song.  I think it was 'This I Love', but interestingly he acknowledged it when the song ended.  Saying "what happened there" or something similar?

Highlights for me were Civil War and Used to Love Her.  The band were ultra tight and everything came together for those songs.

I'll also say that the video screens were outstanding.  The clarity and crispness were remarkable. The video overlay effects were also excellent and greatly added to the drama and emotion.

As far as being in the crowd, I think a bit of the energy and atmosphere was lost by having a whole section of chairs separating the front and rear standing areas. I realise the arrangement is a cash grab, but the atmosphere would have been so much better if it was all standing.

All in all, it was a great event and I'd consider going again.

Thanks for the review, BRMSlash. :rockon:
Nice to know that Slash is the most energetic he's been for years. And Axl half-jokingly pointing out his own flaws is always great.  :giggle:
